I move amendment No. 1 :—
To add to the section a new sub-section as follows:—
(5) As soon as may be after the 30th day of June and the 31st day of December in every year the Minister shall cause to be laid before each House of the Oireachtas a statement giving particulars of all waivers, releases and discharges made or granted during the preceding half-year in exercise of the powers conferred by this section.
Deputy Aiken, on the Second Reading, suggested that it might be desirable to lay before each House a statement showing any waivers that had been made under this Bill. I agreed then to consider the matter. I am introducing this amendment for the purpose of giving effect to that undertaking—a statement to be laid before each House of the Oireachtas every six months, as are particulars of leases to be laid.
